Rice Krispie Treats

What is it about rice krispie treats that make you feel like a kid?

Maybe its the gooey marshmallow crispy crunch you get in every bite.

Or maybe it’s the sticky sweet let me get all 10 fingers stuck togetherness that does it.

 

Rice Krispie Treats

Whatever it is it’s just G.O.O.D!!!!!!

I remember as a child my aunt would make these for every function my grandmother would have over at her house.  I just remember how I would always steal one when no one was looking and then eat another when they were served.  I could never get enough and I just thought that they were the best dessert ever.
